Good idea! Never even thought of that.

Brake ducts

I installed my kit (from JDP) and ran the hoses like SSMIKE (his pictures are a ton better than mine).

All of the prior posts really helped with my install, so thanks to all.

A question for those who have had these kits for a while....any issues with water etc getting in the inlets/hose?

I should be giving them a good test at Road Atlanta in March, so hoping to be able to tell a real difference.

SSSoon - awesome job with your install.

Phase I Complete!

First off, I'd like to give kudos to JDP for an excellent product and member BC2010 for his inspiring setup (aka I'm going to reproduce it).

One thought I've had is the greatly reduced size of the dust shield (especially the top quadrant).
Anyone experience excessive dust inside their wheel well now?

Ok, so those that bought the JDP Quantum kit, how did you manage to make 4 feet of hose work? I know when I did mine in 2-1/2 I had at least 4 foot per side, and SSSoon bought 10 foot and he says any shorter and he wouldn't have made it.

I would like to switch to the JDP kit, but if the supplied hose isn't long enough I might as well just buy the plates from Lambert and get my own hose.

4" was more than enough! Here's how I ran mine. First pic is driver's side and the next 2 are passenger side.

It comes with 2 pieces that are probably 4 ft long each, it is not 4 ft total like their ad shows. There is plenty of hose with the kit.

Thanks, that's what I thought their ad was wrong. Based on ssmike's pictures, there's no way 2 foot per side would cut it.

YW! Yea I thought the same thing about the length at first! JDP needs to update their website to say 4' per side!

Just remember mine terminated at the fog lights, not at the lower grille. That's what the extra foot on mine was needed for. Sounds like if you are going to the grille, 4' per side is plenty.

How is everyone securing the duct hose to the frame/suspension? I'm afraid of the tie wraps that were supplied in the kit will eventually wear through. I'm also concerned about the steel hose clamps doing the same.

My old setup I used Velcro around the tubing and then ty-wrapped the Velcro to the control arms. I used 3/4 inch Velcro.

What's to stop debris from going in and plugging the ducts or hose? Is there a screen or something we should use?

I used velcro wrap, too, and then zip tied through the velcro to the car.

I did a screen to keep the big crap out - see post #115 in this thread, on page 5

Went to Ace hardware and got some scraps of aluminum door screen.

I like that screen, looks heavy duty! Where did you get the screen and Velcro wrap from. Most Velcro I've seen is 2 separate pieces, I can't quite figure out how that would work. Do you have any pics of the Velcro? Sorry for all the questions!

Bought both from Pegasus.

https://www.pegasusautoracing.com/pr...asp?RecID=6263

You put a full loop of the velcro material around the hose with the fuzzy part pointing out. Then you put a full loop of the other velcro material with the hooks pointing in. Then, you jam the zip ties between the hooks and loops, or between the material and the hose. Could sent pix later in the week - am traveling.

way more expensive than screen door but I wanted something really solid. I painted it black - it comes silver.
